As I understand it (which may be seriously flawed and not too
detailed) there are two issues at play:

1) technically the UK does not have patents in software (although in
reality they do exist)

2) US publicly funded work has specific constraints on the way outputs
are made available for public use, the UK does not have the same
restrictions.
